Hunting the Panhandle-Plains

Exhibition Website

Sep 19 2015 - Jan 7 2017

The Southern Plains and the breaks along the Canadian, Red, Brazos and Wichita rivers have provided habitat for game animals and birds for thousands of years. Since humans came to this part of North America approximately 12,000 years ago, they hunted the animals that lived in this region and thereby contributed to major changes in the natural environment and in local fauna. Using artifacts, specimens, fossils, and works of art, this exhibition will present how animal life on the Panhandle-Plains has evolved and how this affected hunting, settlement, and migration patterns both in prehistoric and historic times.
